    Uh, stop being retarded? Why are you lurching forward like a chicken on high bar squat? You should be able to look yourself directly in the eyes if a mirror was in front of you.

      kys I'm asking a genuine question here, but thanks for the bump

      Strengthen your spinal erectors and improve your ankle flexibility.

      any particular suggestions?

    Put the bar on your shoulder blades, not your neck. You want to train your legs m8, not guillotine yourself.

    the blue dotted line should hit cross through the middle of your foot. push the bar further down your back, tighten your upper back, and stick your ass out farther backward. if you can't do it, your shoulders might be tight and you need to stretch them.

      he is sitting back. he's sitting way too far back and barely bending his knees plus he has to bar too high even for a highbar squat.

    If you don’t flex and engage your abs and lower back you will get injured.

      I engage. I do the "push your stomach out as you breathe in and flex" thing, forgot what it's called. Anything else I should be doing?

      cool thanks, I want to do high bar squats though, should I still be moving the bar down? Obviously it's not as high as the pic

        Yes brave with the air in but also flex your lower back muscles and abs so you stay upright and it will keep you from ass wink or whatever it’s called when your ass dips under.

        Also regardless of how you’re attempting to squat the bar should always move as perfectly vertical as possible and travel inline with your mid foot.

    Like some other people said here. You’re using low bar form to squat with it high bar. If you want to keep squatting that way you need to find the low bar placement that works for you—look it up. You also want to make sure you keep your chest up and that you’re advantaging your hips to drive out of the hole. Meaning at the top of the squat break at the hips and sit back reducing forward knee movement as much as possible. You look pretty tall so you might want to consider getting some good squat shoes. Otherwise if you want to keep the bar on your traps you need to be very upright and make sure your putting the weight in your quads

      Nah, that level of inflexibility isn't healthy. Its gonna translate into other issues later. Even if he hates squats, he should definitely get that issue fixed now

    Just high bar squat ass to grass. Straight down and straight up. None of this bending over nonsense. Anything else is ego lifting. Don't even try to argue this, you are wrong.

    Ankle mobility. Your knees aren't going far enough forward so you lean forward to compensate and prevent falling backward.

    The best way to combat these is to hold a squat position for several minutes while staying as upright as you can. Do it as often as you can for faster results
